CommentSome species of this genus are venomous although we do not have information about this particular species.

Rhabdophis nuchalis is similar to Rhab- dophis angeli, but differs in the number of ventrals (117–126 in angeli vs. 139–169 in nucha- lis), number of subcaudals (39–46 in angeli vs. 49–64 in nuchalis) (data from Smith, 1943 and Zhao et al., 1998 and P. David pers. comm.). Moreover, R. angeli has 15 rows of scales throughout vs. 17:15(17):15 in R. nuchalis (from AHMED & DAS 2006). 
EtymologyNamed after Fernand Angel (1881-1950), French herpetologist. See Guibé & Davis (1951) for an obituary.
